INTERMEDIATE AND ADVANCED PAINTING
7 Sessions » Wednesdays, January 25-March 8
6:30–10 pm | Studio 117 | $380
Prerequisite: Recent college- or extension-level courses in both drawing and painting required.
Through visual and verbal analysis, you will increase the power of your work and overcome roadblocks that hinder the completion of paintings. The course will explore the content of your art through irony, humor, narrative, mood, and the use of unusual materials. Individual instruction and technical assignments will help you to explore a particular style and become more independent by painting in series.

What materials (if any) will I need to bring to class?

What are my transport/parking options getting to San Francisco Art Institute?
All classes meet at 800 Chestnut Street, between Jones and Leavenworth. You can find directions to campus on the SFAI website.
SFAI is located in a residential neighborhood, and free two-hour parking is available on all of the streets immediately surrounding the school. The two-hour restriction cuts off at 9 pm, so evening Public Education students do not need to move their car, unless you arrive prior to 7 pm.
SFAI is easily accessible via public transportation, with Muni bus lines #30 Stockton, and #47 Van Ness located within a few blocks of campus.
I have a question that isn't on this list. Who can I contact?
